How to Choose a Bioink for Use in 3D Biofabrication

We’ve talked about what bioprinting entails in general. We’ve touched on the types of cells that we can incorporate into bioprinted constructs. We’ve also discussed the potential of this technology

Self Healing using Synthetic Biology

Today, we wanted to provide some context to spark a discussion on using synthetic biology as supplements in structures to make them self-healing. There is a piece on self-healing concrete that was
